7 days left in August, and incidently….


In four months we have raised just over $2000.00 which has helped tremendously and we are so very thankful for those who have supported and continue to support us..

But we still have to raise another $1000.00. Preferably before the month of August ends.

Today, we have some immediate needs too. The BIGGY is the mortgage payment. But the as time goes by, getting by in the day-to-day becomes an issue too. Today is one of those days.

So please, please, please.. If you are able donate today

Even the smallest donations add up.


Thanks again. Anything you can do is greatly appreciated.

Have a GREAT day.

GOD BLESS you ALL! WE couldn’t have come this far without you.

And today, I MUST try again!


Today, we are having trouble covering some really basic needs.

Donations ( in any amount ) are STILL VERY MUCH NEEDED TODAY and GREATLY APPRECIATED !


Thank YOU all for your support and continued support.

Please Please Please HELP us in this home stretch. 60.83% Raised.


Getting there BUT Needs still EXIST ! Won’t you help us reach our goal?

$5, $10, $20, $25 …… Anything and Everything ADDS up!!!

Back in April, we were having trouble just getting by in the day-to-day meaning we were going without the most basic necessities, like food, and TP. ( plz read… ) Can you even imagine? I couldn’t until it happened to me. And it was out of that desperation that this blog was born. It was by far, the hardest thing I have ever done in life.

Slowly, thanks to the kind support of total strangers, things began to turn around for us.

It was only then that I could actually determine a realistic fundraising goal of $3000.00.

PLEASE NOTE : We were ( ARE ) NEEDY, not GREEDY! And the goal was NEVER meant to put on easy street and won’t BUT it will give us stability to move forward.

In the first month we raised approximately $ 100.00 and believe me, even that made a huge difference because we were able to eat and buy those little daily incidentals that we were going without before. By the end of the second, we raised $500 total ( this included gift cards to three different stores ) and we have since raised another $ 1,200.00 or so for a total of $ 1,825.00.

These funds went to food, non food essentials, two mortgage payments, auto insurance, a partial payment on an old garbage bill, one dump run ( a few more are needed ) and it also put gas our vehicle which allows us to access local resources, get to and from appointments and so forth.

PLEASE, at this point, I ask you to sharpen your pencil…Think about it, there hasn’t been anything extra to spend frivolously.

In the last two weeks, we have seen a SHARP decrease in donations ( but not traffic to the site which bugs me because I know these posts are being seen yet ignored by so many ) But anyway any financial RESERVE we had is NOW GONE!

The last of it went to pay a reduced portion of an old garbage bill, and pay for dump fees for one dump run which made a dent in our garbage disposal problem.

On Monday our last GOFundMe donation check arrived and it was ALL BUT gone before I ever got home from cashing it. I think I had a dollar left.

Monday evening, we received another $60.00 donation which covers the balance of July’s mortgage payment and that pretty much taps us out again.

Today, we are at YET another standstill and the IMMEDIATE needs are piling up AGAIN to the tune of $240.00 as new cycle of bills are coming due.

To be able to transition into the month of August with these things dealt with would mean the world to us…

The bills don’t scare me so much anymore because slowly but surely these needs are met) but there is still the MATTER of home repairs we desperately need to make. One is a severe plumbing issue and a backed up septic system. A garbage disposal issue that has been partially dealt with. All these things pose health and sanitation issues for us. And we’ve been living like this too long already.

I hope I don’t sound ungrateful! God knows that this is not the case. None of the improvements would have been possible without those who have stepped up to help. A FEW really STAND OUT! 🙂 They know who they are! If only a few more people could have as much faith, I wouldn’t be writing this post.

I don’t like writing these posts, especially when there is so little monetary support response of late. It makes me feel like crap actually BUT again we SILL NEED your help.

At one point a few days ago, I felt like I needed to chalk this up to another failure BUT decided we can’t afford another failure AND so I am asking you, ( NO PLEADING ) for HELP here.

PLEASE DONATE ( ASAP ) if you are at all able :

DONATIONS in any amount are GREATLY appreciated.


IF you can’t DONATE TODAY, but would like to PLEDGE HELP at a LATER date, please let me know.

It’s VERY hard to budget when there is nothing to budget with.

Again. Thank you ALL SO VERY MUCH.

For those who have contributed ( some more than once ) We are INDEED GRATEFUL and are forever in your debt.

God Bless You!

Happy Hump Day! 🙂
